A discussion paper that reviews Canada’s contributions to the field of public health, focussing on the failure of interventions aimed at individual behaviours or risk variables to adequately address key determinants of health for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, Two-Spirit, intersex, and queer (LGBTTTIQ) people. Uses the ongoing process of defining new public health goals for Canada to show how an intersectional approach to public health could more effectively address the social determinants of health for LGBTTTIQ people.

The thesis of this article is that the Canadian tradition of secrecy around the approval of drugs and devices, coupled with inadequate post-marketing surveillance, has harmed Canadian women and their families. Mains states that proposed changes to the legislative framework must ensure greater transparency and accountability to the approval process as well as enforcement of more stringent conflict of interest guidelines. This peice includes a list of recommendations.
